Southern pop recording artist Sophia Scott premiered her new music video for single, “She Ain’t Me” through AXS. The audio version debuted with Substream Magazine and was featured on Spotify’s New Music Friday.
“She Ain’t Me” has the southern touch of Carrie Underwood with attitude comparable to Rihanna or Alessia Cara. The visuals charm is enhanced by the home video aesthetic created by producer Stephan Bieleki’s and co-directors Phil Dorling and Danny Erb. Her impassioned hook emphasizes the songs message, “You say she’s beautiful, like she walked right out of your dreams, she ain’t cynical, she never fights or disagrees, but I know you and what you need, and she can’t give you everything, cuz there’s one thing she’ll never be, she ain’t me.”
During an exclusive interview with AXS, Sophia was asked about the track’s message. She said, “I wrote this song last year in Nashville. I had a note in my phone that said, “perfect ain’t as perfect as it seems.” The song seems like it’s about an ex, but there is a lot more meaning to the song. The guy in the story portrays his new girlfriend as this perfect girl that’s not me, and through the song I realize yea, she’s not me, and I’m ok with that.”
The LA-based artist who also plays the guitar and writes her own music developed a cult-like following due in part to her popular bedroom covers series on YouTube. Sophia gained more than 1.2 millions views for an acoustic rendition of Rihanna’s “Love On The Brain” (click here) back in 2016. Since shaking up the independent music scene with sky-scraping vocals and soothing melodies, Sophia continues to manifest the depths of her potential with her new single, “She Ain’t Me.”
“She Ain’t Me” debuted with Substream Magazine last month and it was later picked up by Celeb Mix. The songs relatable theme connected with music journalist and fans throughout the U.S.
Sophia adds, “Since the song came out, I have been so pleasantly surprised at all of the personal messages I have received from women and men about what this song means to them. I don’t want to say what I want each person to feel, because the beauty of any song is that it should cater to the listeners personal emotions. However, my hope would be that everyone can feel a little bit better from this song if they’re dealing with anything similar and be confident in who they are no matter what happened in their relationship.”
